"These inspirational stories reflect a range of efforts from organizations that are actively applying COVID-19 controls in novel ways."

The stories begin with a two-minute segment about Midtown Detroit, Inc., an early adopter of mandatory face masks at participating museums and cultural attractions. Other featured individuals and institutions include:
